  1. I'm curious about a few colors in the GvFC line, but have not decided if I want to "pull the trigger" yet, so to speak. Seems like they are well-respected inks, but I can't tell if it's more because of the general impression of a high-end product due to the heavy-duty glass designer bottle, or if the inks themselves stand out in some way. (I must admit, it bothers me that they label their inks as "indelible", but the water resistance part of that is not near-100% like a true permanent ink would have. Almost all of their inks wash off significantly, but do leave something behind. People th
  2. I am always hunting inexpensive notebooks or legal pads that are fountain pen friendly for my work. I have been, for the most part, disappointed by the cheap quality of the paper on most pads and notebooks for everyday use. Last night, I spotted a display of these "new" notebooks that boast a high quality paper that resists ink bleed. At $1.97 per notebook, I decided to purchase a couple. A Quick Review of the new Five Star Coillege Ruled Notebook by Acco Brands in A5-related size: This notebook is made in the U.S, and is Number 11231. It has a 2 subject divider and a colorful cover.
  3. I won't add much to previous fantastic reviews of this ink, such as the ones here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/335816-gulf-blue-graf-von-faber-castell/ But I will add my subjective impressions of using this ink and some more scans and photographs. Graf von Faber-Castell makes a luxury line of inks in beautiful, heavy glass bottles that will decorate any writing desk and will draw the eye. Despite the high price, the bottles contain 75ml of ink, so price per ml is actually reasonable. Considering other brands that sell in 20-30ml bottles for lower prices, but you get 2
  4. After a long & strong fight with the penavarice-devil , I finally gave in and bought a GvFC Intuition. I went with the 'terra' - the red-orang-ish barrel. I have also replicated the content with some additional pictures in my blog as the images are reduced to a small thumbnail after a short-while. Below is a link to the same: Graf von Faber-Castell Intuition Review Here goes a review of the same: The Intuition With a covetous eye on this pen, since the time I had got my FCD Ambition and then an orange coloured Ondoro fountain pen, it indeed required lady luck's blessings, to get t
  5. I adore Graf von Faber-Castell Violet Blue ink. When I was looking into getting a bottle, I could not get an accurate impression of the color from on-line photographs. The ink looked different everywhere. One review said it was vibrant. None of that was really accurate when I finally did get my bottle and started writing with it. Violet Blue is a powdery, muted color-shifting ink, translucent and highly shading. It can go from almost pink-lavender to deeper lavender-purple, and even bits of blue. I would say even though it is a blue-lavender, it also has a warmth to it where the sophis
  6. Disclaimer: I enjoy doing mini ink reviews for my personal reference, and I'd like to share them with others if they might be of help to gain an insight into the ink's appearance and performance. I generally don't have time to put together super comprehensive reviews, like some of our fantastic reviewers here do (thank you so much for your hard work!), but hopefully these mini reviews will still be useful as another point of reference. Graf von Faber-Castell - Deep Sea Green Recently I became interested in GvFC inks. They seemed overpriced before, and I was severely disappointed with
  7. Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company's introduced six inks. Last year they've added three new colors to the line. This year they've done the same. Three new GvFC colors hit the shelves. Viper Green is quite nice. It's not the most saturated green ink ever created but it remains perfectly legible in all conditions and feels fresh. While I prefer olive greens, this one looks decent to me. It feels quite wet, even in drier pens a
  8. GvFC Platino intuition has 3 colour option, sure Ebony and Grendilla are both great, but I really like the Pernambuco wood. By the time I spend on trying to buy it from internet, I realize its not an easy task. And my friend tells me that Pernambuco product has been stopped. So here comes some question: 1. Is Pernambuco really out of the production line? 2. If its true, is it because shortage of material or quality control issue? 3. 😂😂Last but not least, whats the fair price of Pernambuco now?😍😍

    India Red - Graf Von Faber-Castell

    Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company's introduced six inks. Last year they've added three new colors to the line. This year they've done the same. Three new GvFC colors hit the shelves. India Red is enjoyable to use. The color isn't too heavy but I like it. Also, the flow is simply excellent. It flows almost like J. Herbin Eclat de Saphire and I love it. I haven't experienced any clogging or skipping issues and that's always a
  10. I have the choice between EF and M on a GvFC classic. I would probably have gone for an F normally but this is really a good opportunity so that is out of the question. I am happy with a fine line, as long as it isn't scratchy and has good flow. I hear GvFCs are on the wetter side so that pushes me towards an EF. Does anyone have any experience or comparison of an EF v M? I've again heard that GvFC, being German, tend towards a broader side of things. For comparison, I have a TWSBI EF which isn't too fine or scratchy for me (I think it's a good one though). I also have a MB 146 M which is a

  14. I am happy to share a review of the Graf von Faber Castell Elemento Fountain pen, which is incidentally my first limited edition fountain pen. I have also replicated the content with some additional pictures in my blog, since the images are/will be reduced to a smaller thumbnail after a short-while by the image hosting service. Below is a link to the same: Review of Graf von Faber-Castell Elemento ELEMENTO L.E To be honest, the Elemento seems so alluring, ever since I have got an Intuition. Its yearning could only multiply with time. A sale was good enough to trigger my purchase as I c

    Question Gvfc

    If you have a GvFC intuition roller and a GvFC intuition nib unit, can you make a fountainpen out of it? Or are the interior of the cap and body different from the fountain pen!? The same question goes for the intuition platino wood. I have a GvFC Elemento rollerball and I'd like to make it into a fountainpen.
  17. Graf Von Faber Castell Here are my new Graf Von Faber Castell Pencil’s. Alas, still no Perfect Pencil. The difference between these and the Perfect Pencil is the heavy metal cap (is it silver?), integrated sharpener and integrated eraser. Appearance: The pictures speak for themselves. I very much like the look of these. Lead: A lighter, harder lead which nevertheless has a nice soft feel. Goes down nicely on GVFC paper. Here they are… Close- up of the ends… A GVFC pencil resting on it’s GVFC Grain Leather A5 Notebook holder… Face down in their GVFC pencil-pot… As you can see, I’ve be
  18. Graf Von Faber Castell Desk Accessoires Been on a spending spree with desk accessories lately. Below a pic of GVFC Pen Tray, Letter opener, Pencils, and Pen/ Pencil holder. Pricey but very high quality, heavy, premium products. I normally prefer Japanese leather items such as Pilot Somes line or Saddleback leather, but these European GVFC products are really growing on me. I think I like the combination of polished metal with the cowhide saffiano leather.

  19. After few years of presence on pen forums I amassed a sizable collection of unnecessary things. As the collection of pens and inks grew I had to evict my dog and cat to make more place for pens and to sell my Darling Wife to finance expensive hobby. Okay, It seems I got carried away and you’re right to think my claims are exagerrated. They are. Dog has stayed. http://imageshack.com/a/img903/8199/Yasb8R.jpg Someone has to keep an eye on the pens while I'm gone. And now on more serious note Over the last few years I tried quite a few fountain pens and even more inks. I am rathe
  20. Hey Folks, After some follow up with the Faber-Castell India team I got the following update regarding their ink availability in India. You can drop a mail ti Pramod in case you want any of the stock FC Blue/Black inks. Else he can order the GvFC Cobalt Blue/ Carbon Black from Chennai. Hope this is useful.

  21. I've had a GVFC black Guilloche pen for perhaps a dozen years (more than 10 less than 20). While it is a very pretty pen, and seems to have a good reputation, it really doesn't suit me (weight, section size, nib width), and so it gets no pocket time. I was thinking about selling it or trading it, so I went to look in the usual places for the list and street price. I noticed that the current generation of guilloche pens seem to have two tone nibs. My pen has a one tone gold nib (see below). The markings on the nib look right, and it says 18kt, but before I list it, I would like to be sure I
  22. Good news! The new Graf von Faber-Castell bottled ink range is now in stock. “Great, more ink in fancy bottles” you might say. This ink is different though. It certainly does come in a very fancy bottle, with a nice, heavy, stable base, but it’s what’s inside that counts. Six colours: Carbon Black, Cobalt Blue, Garnet Red, Hazelnut Brown, Stone Grey and Moss Green. The most interesting part though is that Graf von Faber-Castell say four of the colours are document proof and the other two are light-fast. We’ve taken the liberty of testing the inks for you so you can see just what they
  23. In the last years I have written some reviews about four remarkable fountain pens. All reviews were written little after having acquired the FP. This reviews are about these FP: Parker Duofold Black Mosaic Graf von Faver Castell Classic Sailor King of Pen Pelikan M1005 Silver & Black Now, some months or some years later, having been able to use all my FP in a wide way, my perception about these FP has changed notably. Aesthetically I like them all four. Perhaps de simplicity of de Sailor KOP lines is in my opinion unbeatable. I also like very much the touch of the hard rubber. But if
  24. i've always loved faber-castell pens and their impressive crowns--classic simplicity itself, with a very regal bearing. i have the pernambuco and the black guilloche, among other F-Cs, and i thought that was the end of my F-C lust until.... this one came along, in the form of a "second-chance" offer from an ebay seller (this means that the low-ish bid i left on the pen some time ago turned out to be good enough, when the high bidder couldn't pay). i'm all tapped out from too many recent high-end pen purchases (MB 100th anniversary, a CS LE, vac-band vac, etc.), ha ha, but i would've gone to t
